Sunday 8/28/11--Virgo new moon

The last new moon of summer, in Virgo (8:04pm Pacific time), a convergence in ripening fruitfulness, a harvest of physical adjustment and situational resolution. We are letting go of what doesn't serve us, getting things in clarified order, ready for an autumn of renewal, this year with an emphasis on true love and harmony (Saturn in Libra).

With heavy power in grounded constructiveness (Pluto in Capricorn) and big creativity in peak spring flowering (Jupiter in Taurus), there is a solid core of planets in the three earth signs, giving strength to practical realism and the force of deep nature. With mental Mercury now moving forward again, it's a good time to settle in and take care of business, enjoying the bounty of our blessings, getting ready for good things to come, rooted in real needs, real strengths.

This is the harvest of consequence. Soon, a fresh start in the land of love.

Tuesday 8/16/11--Venus alignment

On Tuesday, August 16, at 5:08am Pacific time, Venus, the Sun, and our planet will be in alignment. For some reason, the patterns impressed in the fields of southwest England this summer have made repeated reference to this, as if it has consequential significance. The Mayan Calendar makes special note of the Venus cycle, with the rare eclipse alignment next June 6 cited as especially important.

Venus is the newest planet in our solar system, its adjustment into its current orbit witnessed and mythologized throughout our world. It is associated with love, the binding force that naturally resolves conflict in the mutual relief of harmonious resolution. With Venus in alignment behind the Sun, its energy is magnified as it reaches us. Next year, with Venus in front of the Sun, it will serve as a focusing lens of love.

At this time of historic evolutionary intensification, where yielding to the miracle of nature is the best we can do, accepting the loving influence of beautiful, incandescent Venus may be critical to individual and collective salvation.

"There's nothing you can do, but you can learn to be you in time--it's easy. All you need is love."
